Beloved Land

The World of Emily Carr

Introduction by: Robin Laurence

A celebration of the art and writing of a great artist who dedicated her life to portraying the powerful majesty of the coastal landscape, the lush rainforest and the monumental totem poles created by the native people of British Columbia.


One of Canada's best known and best loved artists, Emily Carr’s passionate nature paintings have been compared to those of Georgia O’Keeffe, Edvard Munch and Vincent van Gogh. She was also a popular writer whose engaging books are still widely read. The 40 full-colour paintings chosen for Beloved Land: The World of Emily Carr from the collection of the Vancouver Art Gallery are among Emily Carr’s most popular, and they are accompanied by short quotations from her writing. The introduction by Robin Laurence presents revealing insights into the life of this unconventional and gifted woman.
